We started off our wine tour with Vin en Vacances off by visiting the Domaine de Cibadiés winery. There is always a lot of activity occurring when you visit the wineries after harvest. That is the case here too. What is interesting is that Nancy and I have never done a wine tour when there are grapes on the vines. Maybe that will change this year! It was cool to see the grapes from harvest going through the process. There is always debate on whether concrete or steel is better. After we toured the winery and met the winemaker, we boarded a boat and tasted their wines on the Canal du Midi. What a great morning with Wendy and Marcel.
